Was Tamana a Universal Civilization of Mankind Before the Great Flood?
Was there once a Universal World Culture? A researcher in Hawaii, Dr. Vomos-Toth Bator argued there was such a culture, and he presented over 1,000,000 place names from around the world to prove his point.
At Borota-Kukula in Hungary, Borota near Lake Chad in Africa, Kukura, Bolivia and Kukula, New Guinea we find Cone-Houses of similar shapes. In addition, Dr. Vamos Toth found 6000-year-old pottery signs from sites such as Tordos in the Carpathian Basin of Europe, ancient Egypt, and Banpo in China all showing amazing correspondence. Toth explains that the appearance of identical place-names in different parts of the world is evidence of an ancient civilization that formerly existed that he called Tamana.

All of these similarities in place-names and cultural expressions, separated by thousands of miles suggested to Toth that at some time in our distant past mankind shared a universal culture. He believed he had found this Universal culture which spanned the entire world untold millennia before our present era. Toth called this pre-Diluvial culture: Tamana, the name these ancient civilizers used to denote their colonial cities.
Over a decade ago Toth observed that certain place-names common to his ancestral home in the Carpathian Basin of his beloved Hungary, were also found in countries outside of Europe. After years of research he discovered that 5800 places names are found in the Carpathian Basin and 149 countries around the world. Over 3500 of these place names can be seen outside of Eurasia, in Africa, the Americas and Oceania. Most of these towns and rivers that share Tamana place names are found in areas recently discovered or geographically not known even 100-150 years ago.

Topographical names rarely change; even though new peoples may settle in an area. For example, my home town of Chicago still bears a name originally given the area by its former Native American inhabitants.
Tamana - Original Settlement
The term Tamana is a place name found in 24 countries around the world. Toth discovered the occurrence of this place name as a river in Northern Ontario: Tamuna (< Tamana). This place-name situated in a secluded swampy area near the Hudson Bay, is an infusive-superfusive survival of the word Tamana.

The term Tamana in the Manding language of Africa, the Magyar language of Hungary and the Dravidian languages spoken in India share the same meaning: "Strong Place, Stronghold' or 'Original Settlement. Since the cities established by the Tamana people were cities or trading centers situated among hostile tribes led to these settlements being called: Tamana or 'stronghold'.
The Tamana people may have come from Saharan Africa, because they appear to have expanded around the world after the Deluge, which some researchers like Zecharia Sitchin, who in his book When Time Began , believe occurred 13,000 years ago. Sitchin believes that 13,000 years ago climatic changes occurred after the Antarctica ice sheet melted and sent a giant tidal wave, destroying low-land areas throughout the world.

There is considerable mention of a great deluge in the legends and ancient lore of almost all the peoples on the planet. In the Hebrew Bible, we find the biblical account of Noah, who was told by god to build an ark to carry the remnants of mankind and the animals of the earth.
In the Mesopotamian cuneiform writing there is also mention of the great deluge. In the Mesopotamia account of the deluge the Sumerian god Enki, told Atra Hasis to build a boat to save mankind during a great flood that lasted days. And in India we find mention of the god Manu, who is supposed to have saved mankind after a similar great flood.

All of these stories have a common theme. That theme is the presence in ancient times of pluvial climate which led to mankind learning more about the navigation of the seas, and boat building.
It would appear that because of the world wide flooding of low land areas, the only safe place to live at this time may have been the highland areas of Saharan Africa. It is this theory which has led to the Tamana culture bearers being called Proto-Saharans.
